Illustrating the probability distribution.
If a computer’s random number generator is providing an accurate distribution of numbers, when you simulate the roll of two dice and record the sum, you should achieve a bell curve in the result of a thousand rolls. This program illustrates the output of the random number generating Mersenne Twister algorithm used by the random library in Python.
Write a program that outputs the number of 2’s, 3’s, 4’s etc. that are rolled by adding two random numbers between one and six. The number of rolls to simulate is input by the user.
Use this boilerplate code as a starting point:
Remember to add a comment before a subprogram, selection or iteration statement to explain its purpose.
2 : 34
3 : 61
4 : 82
5 : 131
6 : 147
7 : 168
8 : 130
9 : 101
10 : 79
11 : 44
12 : 23
Use these resources as a reference to help you meet the success criteria.
Run the program several times with a thousand rolls to check that your program has met the success criteria.
Check that you have:
You might want to create a chart of your results in a spreadsheet to see the bell curve.
